Chemical composition / key active constituents
The presence of Gymnemic acid (GA), (+) quercitol, lupeol, ß-amyrin, stigmasterol etc., have been reported. GA I, II, III and IV are anti sweet substance from the leaves of G. sylvestris. They all contain a glucuronic acid moiety, and the gymnemagenin aglycone esterified at position C-21 and C-28. A second series of Gymnemic acid V-VII has also been reported. GA VII is the 3-O-glucuronide of gymnemagenin and GA V is the O-3-glycuronyl- 22, 21-bis-O-tigloyl substitution patterns. GA VIII-IX are also esters of saponin, have an oxoglycoside moiety attached to the glucuronic acid residue. Gurmarin, another constituent of the leaves, and gymnemic acid have been shown to block sweet taste in humans. Some researchers have suggested gymnemic acid as one possible candidate responsible for antidiabetic activity. 

Leaves are found to be antidiabetic, and insulinotropic. The active principles which have been identified as glycosides (several gymnemic acids) suggest that the topical and selective anaesthetic effect of the plant might result from the reaction of the receptor sites between glycosides and the sweet substances. Gymnemic acids inhibited glucan formation by streptococcus mutans in vivo and also markedly inhibited the activity of glucosyltransferase from bacterial coat creasing capillary fragility. 

Remedies For
It is used as an anti-diabetic. It stimulates the heart and circulatory system, activates the uterus and increases urine secretion. Gymnemic acids are useful for prevention of the formation of dental plaque and caries.

Recent studies in India have used 400 mg per day of a water-soluble acidic fraction of the gymnema leaves. In adult-for diabetics, ongoing use for periods as long as eighteen to twenty-four months has proven successful. In IDDM (juvenile onset) diabetic patients, a similar amount has been usedsuccess-
fully as an adjunct to ongoing use of insulin. Traditionally, 2-4 grams of the leaf powder per day is used.
